We missed you! As of June 1 2020, we will be reopening the doors of the CCCPB surgical center and the MedicSPA.




Dr. Berbari and her team prioritize patient and staff safety. Please familiarize yourself with these new procedures:


          Services will gradually resume from June 1 2020, respecting the social distancing guidelines issued by Public Health.


          Long-term follow-ups will resume as of June 22 2020 and will be carried out by telemedicine. Appointments will be given after July 6 2020 as needed.





           We have extended the time slots (fewer appointments per day) to give our employees time to disinfect the rooms between each patient.

           According to the above policies and dates, the contactless payment method will be favoured when making an appointment. Our staff will take your credit card number and the receipt will be emailed to you.

           You will then be invited to answer a COVID-19 questionnaire when booking the appointment (whether it is by email or by phone).

           N.B. follow-up appointments: we will contact you for follow-ups, as visits are now restricted to avoid contamination.



           Please show up on time out of respect for other patients.

           Once you arrive in the clinic parking lot, please announce your arrival by phone (819-243-7667).

           A member of our team will welcome you in the doorway for an evaluation (questionnaire, temperature, mask, hydro alcoholic gel).

           N.B .: Only patients will have access to the clinic, anyone else must remain in the parking lot.



          You will be taken directly to the treatment room.

          We opened door A for the aesthetic care (laser, radiofrequency, PRP etc.) of the MedicSPA and door B for surgery appointments and injections.

          After the appointment, you will be accompanied to the exit by a member of the team.


An explanatory video will be available on social media (@medicspa.gatineau on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM) and the website (drpatriciaberbari.com) on May 29 2020, to summarize these new procedures.


When interacting with our staff, understand that they have received strict directives, we ask you to respect them for your safety.

The Breast Reduction Recovery Timeline By Patricia Berbari on May 30, 2015

Close-up of a woman’s hands cupping her breasts after recovering from breast reduction surgeryThroughout the years, breast reduction has remained one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures; more than 40,000 women underwent breast reduction surgery in 2014 alone. The reasons women have for undergoing the procedure are many and varied, but most breast reduction patients share at least one common goal: they want to bring their breasts into improved proportion with the rest of their bodies. Some women wish to do so because they want to feel less self-conscious about their appearance; others are tired of the physical strain their heavy, pendulous breasts place on their shoulders and backs. Many simply want to lead more active lifestyles unencumbered by large breasts. Whatever reason you might have for considering breast reduction surgery, you can rest assured that Dr. Patricia Berbari will give you the natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing results you desire.

Although breast reduction surgery offers a multitude of physical and cosmetic benefits, it is a major surgical procedure and, as such, requires a significant recovery period. Dr. Berbari will discuss your breast reduction recovery with you during your consultation at her Gatineau office so that you know precisely what to expect before you commit to the procedure. She is a firm believer in the value of patient education and will provide you with all of the information you need to make confident decisions regarding your treatment.

We invite you to read the following general information about breast reduction recovery and then schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Berbari, during which you will find out what your specific healing period will be like.

What does the typical breast reduction recovery entail?

Breast reduction surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis, which means that you will be able to return home on the day of your surgery. Of course, you will not be able to drive yourself home as you will still be feeling the effects of your anesthesia, so you will have to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your appointment. It is probably a good idea to have someone take care of things around the house for you for at least a day or two after your surgery, as well. Although you will be encouraged to do some light walking during this time, your ability to move will otherwise be limited.

You should arrange to take approximately two weeks off of work for your recovery. During this time, you cannot exercise beyond your light walking, take baths, or raise your arms above your head. When you are not walking, you will be resting in an upright position. Even when you are sleeping, you should keep your head elevated.

It is important that you diligently follow all post-surgical instructions provided to you by Dr. Berbari. You must take all medications as recommended, drink lots of fluids, and attend all follow-up appointments. The success of your procedure depends heavily on your ability to follow Dr. Berbari’s instructions to the letter.
